Why get refurbished containers?
A great alternative to a new container – Refurbished Containers are usually a more logical alternative than purchasing a new container. However, you should first choose which container would be better suited to your needs, depending on how you intend to use it. We can assist you with this decision.
Cheaper than a new container – Considering these containers have been used, they are cheaper than new containers.. The cost of refurbishing a used container could be as little as $500 (plus the cost of the container). Cost also depends on the size of the container and whether you chose a lighter pigmented paint color. For example, white paint requires more paint to cover adequately so it costs more than darker colors like beige or gray. Even after the refurbishment, the cost will still be cheaper than a new container. However, many customers opt for a new one trip container because the cost difference is not a great as you might think and the customer gets a new container with a new factory paint job.
Eco friendly – Refurbished containers look good but they still do not look as nice as a new one trip container. By selecting a used refurbished shipping container versus a new container you are recycling the used container and helping protect the environment. The refurbishment process also helps extend the life of the container by minimizing rust and corrosion.
It’s guaranteed to last – Shipping containers are designed to protect cargo even in the harshest conditions. They can handle everything from ocean waves to severe weather. Though refurbished used containers have already been through it all, they are still in wind and watertight condition and can still protect your valuables from the elements.

Our most popular container, used general purpose containers have been in heavy-duty shipping service for 5 to 15 years before being “retired.”
Most used shipping containers will have the original paint and shipping line markings. They will also have surface rust, dents, and abrasions. Used shipping containers might not look good on the outside and inside, but depending on their grade, they will be structurally sound and some may still be suitable for export.
New One Trip shipping containers may have minor dents, dings and scrapes which are a result of normal shipping and handling during their long ocean journey.
These new shipping containers are manufactured in Asia and then shipped to our various depots around the world. In order to reduce the cost of shipping and provide our customers with the best prices we load these new containers with cargo 1 time. This helps us offset the re-positioning costs and allows us to pass on the savings to our customers. Hence the name “New One Trip”.
On-Site Storage Solutions has partnered with TimePayment to offer affordable lease-to-purchase options for qualified applicants (Minimum 550 FICA). If you need a shipping container for your business or personal use this option allows you to purchase your shipping container over time. Payments are usually less than the cost to rent an off-site storage unit with the added benefits of owning the container at the end of the term and having the storage on-site for easy access.
